JETS @ CARDINALS
The Arizona Cardinals feel like they’re on the right track again. After a win over the San Francisco 49ers on the road, the Cardinals feel they are in a good spot to start winning games again. The good news is that they will have Carson Palmer back this week when they take on the New York Jets on Monday Night Football.
For the Cardinals to have a big night at home, Carson Palmer needs to get a little more air under his passes. Defensive backs have been playing back a little bit and that has cut off the deep throws for the Cardinals. Jets head coach Todd Bowles knows Arizona better than anyone in the league and will have some plays dialed up to force some turnovers.
The Jets’ secondary has to also be a lot better. They have struggled against passing attacks and speed. Arizona is all about having a strong passing attack and speed. They will target the Jets early and often with the likes of John Brown, J.J. Nelson and others that can blaze down the sidelines.
David Johnson should also continue to see a healthy dose of running plays. He has had an outstanding season and will need a big push from two backup guards up front in Earl Watford and John Wetzel
